Are video games harmful for children? What do you think are video games harmful or do they benefit you? Well I’m here to say that they can benefit you. And for those who disagree, here is some evidence from some Newsela articles. One piece of evidence from paragraph 5 is. “Some children who play violent games are less likely to be bullies.” Another piece of evidence from Newsela article 14 is. “The brain’s prefrontal cortex actually growing thinker in people who play games” First of all, playing games can improve hand-eye coordination. This is because in article 15-16 it says "Noah, who has Asperger's syndrome, a disability that affects his social skills, started opening up more." This was by playing 'Minecraft'. This can benefit you because it can improve hand-eye coordination and it is fun to play. This is a good thing to do if you are board, well... if you don’t have homework. In addition, playing videogames can teach kids right from wrong. "Professor Mathew Grizzard found that kid who play bad guys in shooter games, often feel guilty. It can teach kids to make right decisions and it can show them the consequences of wrong." This is very important because it is a fun way to learn. Unless you somehow don’t like videogames, which is weird. And for those who think games are not beneficial then tell me how it says on paragraph 3 it says. "Some children who play violent videogames are less likely to be bullies." Still don’t believe me? "Gaming might burn more calories than just watching TV." It says this on paragraph 11. This works because when you are playing videogames you move around more and you burn more calories by moving. When you are watching TV, you don't move around much. If you're like me I first find a comfortable position and curl up and watch Flash every day for 2 hours. Due to the facts of playing videogames and how they can benefit you, videogames are clearly not harmful to teens. So, don’t forget to save the game before the controller before you go outside.
